"Beautiful route despite the wet weather - the NSPCC cheer points really spurred me on. The course was really flat so I managed to get a new PB!"

Charity fundraising ideas

GIF with Ready Steady Go flashing

As the world is changing daily, so is the way people are fundraising for charity and asking for sponsorship. We’re here to help you think of fundraising in a different and safe way during this time.

Did you know… Donations made via Just Giving are paid to the NSPCC once a week. This means we put every donation to use immediately - so we can continue to be there for children.

Here's our handy guide to how you might get your fundraising started (and have fun at the same time!):

  • Online pub quiz - £100
    You don’t need to be at your local to hold a quiz. Get online and use a video conference platform to host one instead. Ask individuals to donate in return for taking part. 

  • Hold an online class - £100
    You may be a teacher, fancy yourself as a fitness guru or think you can teach a musical instrument. Why not reach out to friends and family and host a class?

  • Have a clear out - £150
    Having a big sort out is great during any time of the year. Sell your unwanted clothes and accessories online to rack up the cash.

Questions?

Email us on running@nspcc.org.uk with any questions or for any further information. We're here to support 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
